  • Winnipeg is a friendly, multi-cultural city of approximately 700,000, situated in the centre of Canada. It is fairly laid back as a city with a friendly atmosphere, but has more culture than most of the large cities across Canada. Winnipeg is home to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Manitoba Opera, and many theatre companies, including Rainbow State and

Manitoba Theatre Centre. We are also known for our variety of excellent restaurants, serving food from all parts of the world. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Manitoba Moose and the Winnipeg Goldeyes are ever popular for the sports fan.

  • Summers in Winnipeg are filled with festivals, including the Folk Festival (which is outstanding!), the Jazz Festival, the Fringe Festive, and unique to Winnipeg, Folklorama. As Winnipeg is in close proximity to numerous lakes, parks and beaches, there is no shortage of places to camp, fish and hike. The summers are sunny and very hot for the most part. This also makes ideal weather for many summer sports including ultimate Frisbee, football and running (through our numerous parks). Winnipeg is also known for its cold winter months. The readily-available snow allows for a variety of winter sports and gives an ideal setting for the Festival du Voyageur.
  • We are also home to many professional and amateur sports teams, including the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (football), Winnipeg Goldeyes (baseball) and the Manitoba Moose (hockey). Finally, Winnipeg has an affordable cost of living in Canada. It is easy to find a very nice apartment within ten minutes of either hospital for a reasonable cost. Food, gas and car insurance are also quite a bit less expensive than other provinces, so your money goes further.

Interro-01.gif I am moving and linking here some general lifestyle info I found listed on some subspecialty program pages. Overall, this page might be better with the content from the annual report. Need to find out how we best want to do that. Emailing Ashley Watsko. User:Ttenbergen 17:36, 17 October 2018 (CDT)
